Engage with the Dow Fellows Program

Dow Sustainability Fellows make an impact through managing robust projects focusing on climate, circular economy, and other sustainability topics locally and globally. Graduate students work for one calendar year (January-December) in partnership with an organization and a UM advisor. Project summaries and reports provide insight into the recommendations, tools, analysis, and other work completed annually by interdisciplinary teams.
